The Olympus MJU 600 is part of the Mju series of stylish digital cameras made by Olympus. I bought this in the US for $189. The Mju600 is a 6 megapixel point and shoot camera with a 3x optical zoom. There are 25 scene modes available, including night shooting, portrait shooting, sports, movies and so on.
It also has a weatherproof body, which means that unlike other cameras, pictures can be taken come rain or sun. It's an extremely easy to use camera with a guide button that scrolls through the options very simply. It's also a really nice looking camera, shiny silver and very light.
This camera does take good pictures if shooting conditions are good to start with. I've been having horrible trouble trying to get pictures of my baby daughter though, in every mode she ends up blurred because the camera lacks the speed and focus to take a picture of a moving target. The colour and images are really nice, but only if you're taking pictures of things that will stay still. Battery life is excellent.
This is a really nice budget camera if you only need a basic point and shoot. If you need anything more complex you're better off spending a bit extra for a better quality camera.

EASE OF USE:
The Mju600 cannot be faulted in this region. An extremely easy to use camera with a guide button which explains to users different options.
This camera, while looking pleasing to the eye, it tough and well built. Will survive hard knocks. However note that the battery cover door can break if excessive force is used, which is the same for any other digital camera.
The camera does take good pictures. However pictures tend to come out on the softer side. Additionally you will need to 'half press' the shoot button to get the camera to focus and take sharper pictures. If not, then expect soft blurry pictures.
Exposure and colour are well replicated.
Summary: A good budget camera with long battery life
